The most important thing that you need to make money through affiliate marketing is relationships. If your readers love you, they can follow your recommendations and progress through out the years of your blog.
It’s like a friendship. If you like your friend a lot and they recommend you to buy a product, will you buy it?
Of course you will. There is a relationship between you and them. So you will usually consider buying everything they recommend to you.
It’s same here in the world of blogging. You will try to build relationship with your readers first. So they love you and start to follow your advice.
With no relationship, your readers will not buy anything you recommend; they will not even subscribe or like your blog.
You must build a relationship for your success online.
How to Build Relationships Fast
If you don’t have a relationship already, you will think about this question.
Building relationships may take you months and maybe years, but I will try to show you the fast ways to build ones.
To build relationships fast you need to:
1 – Be personal:
Be personal when you take to your readers.
Remember: They are people like you, and they are reading to posts written by a person not by a bot.
2 – Tell stories:
People like to hear stories. This will make you more personal.
You don’t need to create posts to tell stories about anything in your mind just to build relationships.
Instead you can tell a story that is related to whatever message you want to provide to your readers. By this, you will provide an exciting post + you will build relationship with your readers.
3 – Do random acts of kindness:
When you comment on a-list blog like this and you get reaction from the owner himself (who is busy and have a lot of comments every day) what will be your feeling towards that owner?
Of course, you will be happy and if he had helped you in a problem that you were having, you will never forget him and you will be his loyal reader forever.
Why don’t you try to make such thing with your readers?
- You can comment on the comments on your post.
- You can comment on the comments on your facebook fan page.
- You can also comment on the comments you have on your twitter profile.
Most of the people you will help, will be your loyal readers forever.
This also makes you more personable.
You can also comment on their blogs with a simple comment. And be sure that this couple of seconds that you spent to leave a comment like “this post is great” “your writing is good”, will make the owner of that blogs love you a lot.
Try to make a random act of kindness to your reader that they don’t expect and be sure that there’s a relationship will happen between you and the reader.
So do it a lot with many people you can.
These were 3 fast ways to build relationships with your readers, be personal, tell stories, and do random acts of kindness.
